We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.113.0 release tag in our Git repository.

Visibility: info

This package provides an ELF binary that lacks the use of fortified libc functions. Either there are no potentially unfortified functions called by any routines, all unfortified calls have already been fully validated at compile-time, or the package was not built with the default Debian compiler flags defined by dpkg-buildflags. If built using dpkg-buildflags directly, be sure to import CPPFLAGS.

NB: Due to false-positives, Lintian ignores some unprotected functions (e.g. memcpy).
